Chicago is 9th against fantasy tight ends, but Olsen is a huge part of the Panthers offense; he is still a TE1 this week.
Gates is a hit or miss TE1 that has a nice matchup against the Jets 18th ranked fantasy tight end defense.

Olsen faces off vs. former team (CHI) coming off his worst effort of the year (2/30) - I think Olsen gets back on track vs. CHI D allowing 9th-most YPG to TE position (but no TDs) - Olsen good for 6/61 yards, 0 TD
NYJ has given up 3 TDs to TEs in past 2 (inc. rookie Eric Ebron). Tough to project Chargers aerial options given socialistic nature of QB Rivers, but I think Gates scores to go with a modest 32 rec. yards
